  • You don't! NONE of my children will answer the ringing house phone, including my 15 yr old daughter. I remember racing my brother and sister to answer the phone.

  • She probably figures its not for her,so why answer. At least she brings it to you I guess.

  • She brings me the phone still ringing, by the time she gets to me the caller has hung up.

  • My husband does that! That's funny, yet very annoying. My 14 year old sister does that though too.

  • My hubby does that, because he is shy and doesn't like to talking to people on the phone.

  • Since the vast majority of calls on our land-line are for me, no one in my house will budge when the phone rings except me...unless I ask them while it's ringing. I think it's a sign of the times...both my kids have cell phones, and ALL of their friends only call their cell.
